ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album is my thank you to Artist, Songwriters and Producers such as Gladys Knight, Teddy Pendergrass, Frankie Beverly & Maze, Curtis Mayfield, McFadden & Whitehead, Gamble & Huff, and other Soul Artist of the 70’s. With each mention of “Old School” around the world, you should stand and take your bow as your contribution to the world is absolutely clear and unchallenged. You are amongst my greatest influences and I hope you hear pieces of each you in me as I wish to honor you and remain true to the 70’s soul tradition.

For fans of soul music, I hope this makes you remember that “Reggie had a set Friday night”. Everyone was there and when you got there, the blue light was glowing from the basement and man was it on. Since the “set” had to accommodate everyone, Reggie would turn on the strobe light for those that couldn’t dance to funk and then back to the blue light on tracks that made you want to dance real close. That’s what I wanted to achieve with tracks like “Rain” and “Can’t Let Go”. So while listening, if the mood strikes, feel free to unscrew that bright white bulb, clean the dust off the blue light and hold someone close for 70s sake.

Shouldn’t a song remind you where you were, what you were doing and who you were with the first time you heard it? Isn’t that the magic and purpose of soul music? I hope “Touch My Heart”, “You Love Me” or “More Than Friends” create a special personal moment for you.

What would Reggie’s set be if we didn’t Bop or Step? Hit me with “Contagious”, “Open Your Soul” or “Stay” turn the strobe light off and it’s on. Oh yeah…..I promise to be smooth and not step on your toes.

Remember whispering in Reggie’s ear “man play something fast”. Why is it that girls always danced better than us on the fast tracks? Revisit that night with “Me Around”, “Toss “N” Turn” and “No More Love Remix”.

I believe a soul song should make you smile, make you love, make you cry, make you laugh and most of all make you remember. After all, isn’t that why it’s called Soul Music? Let’s never forget Reggie’s set. That was the time of our life. That was “Old School” and I’m proud to have been there, with you. See you at the next set and until then do one thing for yourself….. Keep your “Soul Satisfied”.


Ward Brown of Brown’s Bag


Blues & Soul Magazine
5 stars and 'Album of the Fortnight'
"...Best cut of the lot though is a shimmering real old school ballad called “Rain” – and it not just the title and the rain effects that remind me of the Dramatics, it’s the overall soulful feel. One of the year’s best indie soul sets."

Justsoul.net
5 stars
"...I will remember driving in my car on a chilly English Autumn morning in November 2006, blue skies all around, the sun beaming down between the golden brown leaves of the trees, listening to this album. It was a beautiful day to soak up the beautiful feel of Brown’s Bag’s new release and it certainly made my Soul feel extremely Satisfied."

Soulexpress.net
5 stars and 'Album of the Month'
"...YES! This is exactly what I want to hear: REAL soul by REAL singers...The love and passion of the music is obvious in every note, every word and every breath.."

Soulwalking.co.uk
"...A strong offering throughout. Musically, this is a 'state of the art' modern Soul release. The opener is
absolutely beautiful ('You Touch My Heart'), whilst I know if Robbie Vincent was still gracing our airwaves, he would be heavily rotating the dancer 'No More Love'. Highly recommended."

Soulportal.dk
4 1/2 stars
"...Ward Brown er en rigtig soul sanger, med en dyb, kraftfuld og intens soul stemme, der på mange måder kan minde om Teddy P eller John Whitehead – hvilket ikke er helt skidt. Albummet "Soul Satisfied" er verbevisende 'old school' soul med en snert af i dag..."

Old Soul, New Feel, Great Sound
I can't begin to say how much this cd turned my head. It's got such a mellow, old-school sound and feel. Nice to hear music like this again...PLEASE, keep writing and recording!
